Experience Virtual Reality For As Low As RM 7.50 At VR LAB.

What is Virtual Reality?

Virtual reality (VR) typically refers to computer technologies that use software to generate realistic images, sounds and other sensations that replicate a real environment (or create an imaginary setting), and simulate a user's physical presence in this environment. VR has been defined as "...a realistic and immersive simulation of a three-dimensional environment, created using interactive software and hardware, and experienced or controlled by movement of the body"

Those of us who were born before the 90's would remember that back then "Virtual Reality" seemed seemingly impossible, the kind of stuff you would only find in movies. 
Amongst those mind blowing Blockbuster Movies were:
1. The Matrix - 1999
2.The Thirteenth Floor - 1999

I remember telling myself "how i wish this was real" being able to experience first hand an augmented reality without causing any physical damage to one's self.
Who would have thought that such an absurd idea would actually materialize into something really awesome! 

Last weekend, I was invited to experience VR for myself by the folks at VR LAB Malaysia . This Media Preview was held at their BIGGEST branch which is situated at SS2.
 

After the media registration, we were given a short introduction and briefing by the Owner of VRLAB Malaysia Datin Shireen.


At VR LAB  they feature the HTC VIVE which retails at a whopping RM 13,800.
Those of you who are unfamiliar with the VR scene, Corporations like Sony and HTC have joined the game and are working towards providing alternatives to the ever so famous Oculus Rift.
In a nutshell, what HTC offers with this package is almost identical to the Oculus Rift.
Almost identical specifications but i believe the HTC stands out as a more cost efficient option.

Enough said about the hardware.
Im here to tell you about my experience at VR LAB.
Being a first timer at VR, (excluding numerous times with my VR Box) i was excited to say the least. I've always wondered what the actual VR experience would be like and I have always wished that i could one day own the infamous Oculus Rift.

HAHAHAHAHAHA..... Never gonna happen!
So yeah,  i was all psyched out waiting for my turn. Ogling at the sight of the the HTC Vive right infront of me.
 

But before i show you what happened when i finally got my hands on them, let just go through what VR LAB has to offer and its prices / packages yeah?









      
  

With packages starting from RM 7.50 / hour during HAPPY HOUR which is from 10.00 am till 5.00 pm, im sure many of us will want to head on down to VR LAB and have a go. If all that still isnt enough for you, then sign up for a 10 hour bulk package or even a membership.

Want to share the experience and joy of VR with your family and friends?
Worried that there's isn't enough space for all of you? Especially if you have a HUGE Family?
Well... that is not an issue at all with VR LAB, not only do they have "twin rooms" that host 2 Monitors along with 2 HTC Vive units. They are also able link all these room together for some "Multiplayer" fun!



Enough said, it's time to Get Up, Get Dressed & Head on Over to VR LAB for the experience of a lifetime!
